Good idea to go on Facebook and Twitter. This shows the forward thinking and openness of City Council and Staff.

My husband and I visited Castlegar over a year ago and found the Pass Creek area to be beautiful. One year later, we purchased a business in Pass Creek and are enjoying the lovely scenary we stare at everyday, it's a welcome change from the city. Glad we visited a year ago because we made the right decision to move here! Come visit us at Pine Tree Market & Mini Storage on Pass Creek Road.

My Cousin and his Wife live in Castlegar, my Brother in Rossland and over the last 20 years I have visited The Kootenays 6 or 7 times and Castlegar and the area are one of my favourite places.
I have enjoyed walking and hiking in the area and have had such fun in particular Log rolling (not very successfully) at Syringa Creek.I am thinking of visiting again this year and for the first time I will get the plane from Calgary or Vancouver into Castlegar - looking forward to the views as I come into the airport - my camera will be ready!!
And it's not just Castlegar - most Canadians I have met seem so friendly, laid back, and willing to help.
Can't wait to re-visit.

I was just simply amazed by the gorgeous view i had on my plane ride into Castlegar. Loved everything. Went to a Hot springs just 2 hours away from Castlegar and that's something ill never forget and hope to go again when i come back. Couldn't get over the sight of hidden waterfalls and the view.

I lived in Robson with my brother for a year--1981-82. Is the dam still up crossing the river and has the ferry expanded?? Tried to look for pictures of them, but couldn't find any on this site. Also, my uncle used to own the Shell station in China Creek--spent many summers there growing up!! Hope to make a trip that way soon--will sure bring up alot of good memories!!
